Dear Colleague,

The 4th Gordon Research Conference on Sensory Coding and the Natural  
Environment will take place in Il Ciocco, Italy from 28 July to 3  
August, 2008.  The meeting is intended to bring together an  
interdisciplinary collection of researchers interested in  
understanding the representation and use of ecologically relevant  
sensory signals in biological systems, along with those interested in  
characterizing the structure of those signals.  The list of invited  
speakers is provided below.

* The full program, and information about registration and submission  
of abstracts for poster presentation, is available at:   http://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2008&program=senscod

* When registering, you have the option of submitting an abstract for  
a poster.  Submitted abstracts may be revised up until mid-July.

* Registration is open until mid-July, *but* is subject to  
availability (attendance is limited to 150).
